Understanding Pain in Palliative Care
Understanding Pain in Palliative Care

Pain can be physical, emotional, spiritual, and social in nature and is part of the human experience, especially at the end of life. Failure to recognize and manage pain can increase the individual’s suffering and decrease quality of life. The goal of this course is to help all non-clinical caregivers and volunteers in palliative and hospice care understand pain, how it is recognized, and ways it can be managed. Common myths about pain are presented as well as the consequences of unrelieved pain. Non-clinicians have an important role to play in both the assessment and management of pain, and interventions to address both are explored.
